$109 Million

posted by on April 4 at 13:58 PM

That’s how much Bill and Hillary Clinton have earned since 2000, according to just-released tax records.

Also: Here’s a story from March on Obama’s tax returns—and his challenge to Hillary to release hers. No word on McCain’s yet.

Think this will hurt her working class cred?

The 109 million stands in stark contrast to her call for a cabinet-level position to fight poverty. Of course, that's what makes politics so much fun.

Well, since 81 percent of America thinks we're going the wrong way and down the tubes, who cares how much oil money it shows in Sen McCain's tax returns? The net result is the same - more Middle Class debt, Middle Class pay below inflation, and more useless foreign wars of adventure we can't pay for, borrowed from the Red Chinese using our kid's unearned Social Security to back the loan with.

Glad some people released them.

no. FDR and Kennedy (2 dudes invoked by Barry O. all the time) were huge millionaires raised in total riches.
The "working class" is smart enough to know who is fighting for them and who isn't.

Meanwhile you are escaping the real news that our fave candidate has a secret policy paper to keep 60,000 and 80,000 troops in Iraq as of late 2010.

Pretty smart, huh? Leaving that strike force there, and only bringing half the troops home.

Probably appeals to those white working class voters in PA.

C'mon dude! You know it appeals to you too!

UnPC, I'm still wondering if you're going to stop posting with your white supremisist buddy Larry Johnson over at NoQuarter. That'd be the moral thing to do, right?

Waiting for the tax returns was never about how much they made. Obviously they are rich. It's about vetting 6 years worth of financials and looking for Rezko-esque dealings, or worse, and allowing the public to make an informed primary vote.

Oops, too late for that! At least voters in PA will have all the facts in time to vote. Maybe.

yeah? what's your point?

@5 The Kennedy's are different. They made their fortune smuggling booze into America during prohibition. What working man can't appreciate the family that helped keep America soused?

The Kennedy's were not romantic smugglers, Joseph P. was straight up gangster.

The tax returns are about finding out who really gave that $5 million contribution to her campaign.
